Flushed Away

Aardman Animations follows up last year’s Oscar-winning Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit with this noticeably more downscale diversion, the company’s first to eschew malleable Claymation for pixel-fueled CGI. The London-set plot, involving a pampered pet mouse (Jackman) plunged into a sewer full of underworld rats and toads, is chockablock with Rube Goldberg machinations and close-call getaways—all of them gleefully breathless enough to distract from the pleasantly puckish yet instantly forgettable critters.
